I must admit that I rather enjoy the change, being different and British, and making the adjustment. murgs dance

Hate it. They keep saying they're going to abolish it but never do ... and to think Summer Time was only introduced to provide extra daylight for the farmers to harvest their crops in the War.

It is now so universal in temperate climes, in both the northern and summer hemispheres, that  any  nation opting out would be in a very small minority.

That's true but I always find odd that Portugal keep GMT along with us so are an hour behind the rest of Europe.
And I think America and Canada do the clocks a week before we do .. I could be wrong about that though.
All very confusing.

"And I think America and Canada do the clocks a week before we do "


Well they would, wouldn't they!


However, in those countries that use daylight saving there is a tendency to standardise the date as the last Sunday in October and the last Sunday in Match.  I know Australia usually changes on the same day as we do.

I don't like it because it gets darker earlier, but I do like the extra light in a morning, being an early riser, gives me another 3 to 4 weeks early walkies before 7am

I wish that the clocks would stay on central European time permanently.  An extra hour of daylight at the back end of the day.  If push comes to shove, (as the old saying goes), a couple of hours forward would suit me fine. cool cool cool

I HATE it.  Having to alter the digital clocks all the time.  I have only just got the three in my bedroom to match exactly to the correct minute...and I have to do it all over again.   As for the one in my car, you need a phd to change THAT one.   For goodness sake, leave it alone...let nature be...it has to be dark either in the morning or night and we would just have to get used to it.

I'm surprised many Murgs have  a problem.

You wake up, you open one eye, it's dark, you close it again!
